John and I opened the observatories around 20:00, me in the photographic dome and John in the visual dome, no visitors this evening. I successfully got the new motor focuser interfaced with my acquisition software and used auto focus whilst I captured some more data for M81 & M82. The sky was a bit murky with bits of high cloud but it stayed mostly clear. Not a lot of clear nights lately and the forecast for coming clear nights have changed to cloud, so I'm glad that I managed to get something.

I have also opened up the big dome on 3rd, 5th, 26th, 27th Feb and the 7th March.
